HOPE WINS THIRD IN MEN'S CONTEST
VOLUNTEER COUNCIL HOLDS MEETING
"THE WEAKNESS OF STRENGTH" BY .JOHN DETHMERS RANKS HIGH
NATIONAL CONVENTION HELD IN YONKERS, N. Y.
After a half hour of enthusiastic cheering and yelling, interspersed with college songs, Simon Heemstra, secretary of the M. 0 . L. called the meeting to order and extended a hearty word of welcome to the delegates. The meeting was then turned into the hands of the president of the M. 0 . L. and the real contest of the evening was begun. Hope Speaks Firet It was Hope's turn to speak first. With an earnestness born of conviction and a clearcut appeal which brought the ' audience to listening silence our representative, John Dethmers, set the standard for the orators of the evening with the oration, "The Weakness of Strength." Mr. Dethmers measured up to oar highest expectations. He was completely at ease on the stage, fle had a winning personality, and »s undoubtedly the most polished rator of the evening. The other orators and their subjects were: "Unto One of the Least of These," Harold Beadle of Kalamazoo College; "The Fire That Failed," Robert Kemper, Olivet College; "The Perpetual Drama and the Critic" Phil Lewis, Alma College; "The Devil Fish", Lee Butterfield, Hillsdale College. With the expectant audience awaiting the decision of the judges, the Ladies' Quartette and College Orchestra entertained them with some fine selections. Musical numbers were also given by Miss Isla Pruim, Miss Nella Meyer, and Mr. George La Mere. The judges for the contest were: Dr. J. B. Nykerk, Hope; Miss M. A. Tanis, Kalamazoo; Dr. W. H. Hayes, Olivet; Prof. F. B. McKay, M. N. S. C.; Miss Donna Schlegelmilch, Adrian; Dr. A. Stewart, Albion; Miss Enid Eichorn, Hillsdale. Each judge passed on all the orations but the one from the college he or she representated. After a few words of thanks and appreciation the president gave the decision: M. S. N. C.—1st. Albion—2nd. Hope—3rd. CAMPUS NEWS Be^ your pardon! Jerry Stryker says we had the wrong twin in the account of the four mile hike by said couple. It was Garret not Hartger.

VALPARAISO WINS DY TWO POINTS LAST MINUTE RALLY GIVES HOOISERS NARROW VICTORY "Chief" Ottipoby Stars Valparaiso managed to keep their slate clean, or nearly so, by handing our quintet of basket tossers, led by Capt. Irving, a 22—20 defeat, but they received Such a severe scare in doing it, that they were badly beaten the next evening at East Lansing, by the Mich. Aggies. One thing, however, was very hoticeable, and that was the fact that the highly tooted Harris, who is rated as the best forward in the country, failed to deliver the goods, and as a consequence did not show up to his best advantage before the local fans. Despite this fact, Harris is still the best forward in the U. S. A., as any member of our team will tell you who saw action in their previous game with Valpo. Then Harris was a human whirlwind, who absolutely could not be guarded, and who seemed to be the whole Hoosier team, coach included. At any rate this is the way in which Valpo staged a comeback and nosed out our five for a two point victory: Hiltpold led off for the visitors en an easy shot, and Irving tossed in his only ringer of the tilt, a mid-court shot. Anderson caged the sphere, soon followed by one guided by Harris. Ottipoby startled the crowd by tossing in one of his famous longrange counters, and before the fans had regained their respective breaths he did the same with an even prettier shot. Irving came through with a free throw, and Hope was leading, 7—6. Harris cashed in on a free throw, and Ven Lente again put the Orange and Blue in the lead with a sensational shot. Hiltpold knotted the score at nine all, and no more scores were registered during the rest of the half. Hope Takes Lead The next* period saw Hope spurt into the lead, which that was maintained until the closing minutes of the tilt-. "Chief" Ottipoby tossed in two free throws, and Anderson tied the score with a ringer. Ottipoby scored two more mid-court loopers, and Yonkman heaved in a free throw. Between these' Anderson sandwiched in a counter. Hiltpold scored a field goal, and the cocky Harris tossed in a shot, giving Valpo the lead. Ottipoby, however, seesawed the lead a bit with a duo, and Harris replied with one of the longest shots registered on the Carnegie court this season. Harris caged a free throw and Cadwallader counted from the field. When "Ben" (Oonllnued on Psffo 2)

M. S. N. C. Wins First Attended by perhaps the largest crowd any state contest has ever witnessed, with a splendid delegation from the other colleges represented in the M. 0 .

Hope had every reason to be proud ^f her representative last Friday, when Agnes Buikema delivered the owning oration of the Seventeenth Afijiual Ladies' Contest of the M. 0 . 4 Her subject was, "America's Strongest Citadel." The home, she said, is the bulwark of our national ideals. When 'the home fails to uphold the standards of purity and mutual love, a blow is struck at the very roots of our civilization. The future of the home rests with the young men and women of today—the fathers and mothers of tomorrow. After the orations "The Glory of the Commonplace" by Miss Shirley Payne, of Kalamazoo College, and "The Feet of Clay" by Miss Flora Marvin Olivet, Miss Eloise Ewell, of Michigan State Normal College, delivered the oration which won second place. Under the title, "The Struggle for Faith" she* pointed out the necessity of faith in our fellow-men as the only remedy f o r the present condition of the world. a variation followed in the form of a piano solo by Miss Nella Meyer, w h o interpeted with superb express ion and technique the "Allegro Affai Opus 57" from Bethoven'a "Sona ta Impasaionata."

Sport Comment "CHIEF" VS. HARRIS On their recent itemary into Michigan the Valparaiso tossers had scheduled games with Kazoo Normal, Hope, and Michigan Agricultural College. All three were considered the hardest of games, but of the three the Michigan Aggies were expected to give them the least resistance. They nosed out the teachers by a three point margin, and then came back in the second period of the Hope game and copped it with a two point lead. At East Lansing, however, they were given the surprise of their lives, and incidentally were beaten 22—12. This is only the second time this season they have been handed the short end of a tilt, and only the fourth time in almost sixty games, covering a two and one-half years' period. Harris, their stellar forward, was in poor shape in all three tilts, and in the tilt against the Orange and Blue, Chief, our diminutive tosser, played Harris off his feet, giving the best exhibition of long range basket shooting seen on the Hope floor in several moons. Not only as basket shooting, but in all the offensive tactics of the game did "Chief" take the better of the argument, perhaps giving Harris the surprise of his lengthy career.

Viljhalmur Stefansson, the famous Artie explorer, addressed the students of M.A.C."The Solution of the problem caused by the constantly increasing population of the world lies in the Artie," he says. Notable among his interesting discoveries was the finding of the race of blond Eskimos. He blames explorers for common misconceptions regarding life in the Artie. Mr. Stefansson undertook the expedition at the behest of the American Museum of Natural History.

"CHICK" DE YOUNG ADDRESS "Y. W." All those who did not attend "Y. W." this week missed a very fine and inspiring message from one of our own Hope representatives, who has just returned from Hope High School in India. In an informal way he pictured the conditions of the Indians, their need of Christian workers, and the qualities necessary for such workers. First, of all, a missionary must have a keen sense of humor, for it is often called into use. Secondly, he must be a spiritual leader. The Indian mind is naturally spiritual. There are no atheists in India and ycu can get an audience anywhere by talking about the Bible. They have an • • idea of God, but it is distorted. Then also, a missionary must be a keen observer, and have the ability to see things with a sympathetic eye. India, the heart of the Orient, has an almost limitless field for work. It is a land of villages. If Christ had visited one village each day since he was on earth, he would still have some to visit. The work in India has a bright future. Everywhere the Hope spirit is evident. Christian schools and practices are even winning commendation from Non-Christians. CURFEW RINGS AT NIGHT AS NEW ALBION PREXY BANS DANCING, SMOKING
